On this day 1st March – on which we commemorate the patron saint of Wales ( a bloke, natch) – here’s my off-the-top-of-my head list of Seven Fabulous Welsh Heroines.
Rhiannon – Princess of mythological Wales
Morgan Le Fay – shape-shifting goddess or sorceress (depending on which myth you read)
Sarah Waters – author of award-winning historical fiction
Cerys Matthews – singer
Catherine Zeta-Jones – actress and Hollywood superstar
Laura Ashley – fashion designer and retailing queen
Megan Lloyd-George – politician
